Video Rating: 4 / 5

Geo-political researcher, public speaker and former oilfield executive, Ian Crane joins us to talk about questionable manmade disasters over the last 14 months. We begin recapping the BP oil spill in the Gulf and discuss the latest developments. Ian tells us about Robert Calusa who he believes was placed on an oil rig intentionally on April 16, 2010 to help create the spill. He also tells us why and how he thinks the Gulf area has been turned into a laboratory and talks about the “behavioral health” payments issued from BP to residents of the Gulf area. We also discuss miscarriages of women in the Gulf, same as the dolphins and the status on oil-devouring microbes. Then, we talk about Fukushima. Ian shares some ideas about why he thinks Japan was targeted. He links Fukushima to the largest E.coli breakout, resistant to penicillin, in Germany. It seems Germany has been keeping an eye on world events. They’ve also been the forefront resistance against the EU’s plan to use GM crops. Now they’re shutting down pre 1980 nuclear plants and winding down the nuclear program. Has biological warfare been released upon Germany?

What do you think needs to be done to prevent another BP-style oil spill disaster?

Question by Andy F: What do you think needs to be done to prevent another BP-style oil spill disaster?
And since this is being posted in the “politics” section, do you think the Republicans or Democrats would be better at putting new disaster-prevention plans in place?

Please say why, also, if you want to.

Oil Spill Stopped: Video of BP’s new cap sealing leak for first time

After almost three months, an oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico has temporarily been stopped. However BP, the oil company responsible for the accident, says it’s too early to label the situation a success. It’s now checking if a new cap, installed earlier this week, can hold oil without it blowing another leak. The environmental disaster happened in April after the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded, and has so far spilt nearly 700 million litres of oil into the sea.

Has anyone been watching BP’s live video feed?

Question by Kenny D: Has anyone been watching BP’s live video feed?
They completed the top kill connection and it looks like they have started force-feeding the heavy drilling mud into the BOP choke and kill lines. But it also looked like the main feed line connection to the choke and kill lines began to leak pretty bad when they started the force-feeding, first a lot of air and then a lot of muddy fluid. Does anyone know if that is normal?

It is my understanding that the pressurized drilling mud is intended to overcome the well pressure and then choke and kill the oil flow, and if it does then the drilling mud will be followed with cement to seal the well. It was interesting to watch the remotely operated underwater vehicles work but since I am not familiar with what is happening, I am just wondering if a bad mud leak at the main feed line connection to the choke and kill lines means that they are having difficulty overcoming the well pressure? Is there anyone here who knows if the mud leak at that main connection is normal?

BP’s ROV Update with Audio

GULF OF MEXICO — This video shows blow out preventer modification in preparation for the Top Kill procedure. It is a series of clips taken over seven days that show the sometimes intricate work performed by Remote Operated Vehicles, which are used to modify existing equipment on the Deepwater Horizon’s Blow Out Preventer. The modifications to the pre-existing choke and kill lines were made to enable them to receive heavy drilling fluids as part of the upcoming Top Kill procedure. (video provided by BP)

BP’s ‘top kill’ slows leak

Barack Obama on oil spill: Those that think we were slow don’t know the facts.

Venice, Louisiana (CNN) — BP’s “top kill” attempt to stop the flow of oil from a ruptured well in the Gulf of Mexico failed, the company’s chief operating officer said Saturday. The oil giant has tried for days to stop the the largest oil spill in US history by pumping heavy, mudlike drilling fluid into a ruptured oil well, a method known as “top kill.” The next option is to place a custom-built cap known as the “lower marine riser package” over the leak, the company’s chief operating officer, Doug Suttles said. BP crews were working Saturday to ready the materials for that option should it become necessary, he said. “We’ve been prepping that all along in case we need to move to that option,” he said. “People want to know which technique is going to work, and I don’t know.” And if “lower marine riser package” were to fail, he said, BP engineers would try placing a second blowout preventer on top of the first, which failed to cut of the oil flow after the April 20 explosion of the Deepwater Horizon rig. The failed blowout preventer is a 48-foot-tall, 450-ton apparatus that sits atop the well 5000 feet underwater. Meanwhile, teams in Louisiana were working Saturday on a clean-up project aimed at protecting coastal marshes while BP continues its efforts to stop oil from gushing into the Gulf of Mexico.

Is there genuine reason to be excited that BP’s containment cap has stopped the oil gushing from the wellhead?

Question by Kenny D: Is there genuine reason to be excited that BP’s containment cap has stopped the oil gushing from the wellhead?
Remember this?

BP Cites Broken Disk in ‘Top Kill’ Failure

Just because the containment cap has stopped the oil gushing from the wellhead does not mean that oil is not gushing from the wellbore and casing under the sea floor. Is all of this media hullabaloo about the success of the containment cap just false hope?

Best answer:

Answer by JoyfulNoise
The only thing I’d be excited about is if they finally came to their senses and let others from countries who have had leaks such as this one come over and help get this disaster fixed.

What do you think of BP’s next step to attempt to contain the oil leak…?

Question by “Stonewall” Buster 2.0: What do you think of BP’s next step to attempt to contain the oil leak…?
tHis actually seems to be the easiest, and most logical option that they probably should have tried first…..What do you think?

“BP to install new containment system
Doug Suttles, chief operating officer of BP Exploration & Production, said the top kill pumping started at 1 p.m. CDT on May 26. The operation involved repeatedly pumping awhile and then stopping and monitoring the well. The decision to give up on the top kill effort was made about 4 p.m. on May 29.

“The next thing to do is to capture as much of the flow as we can,” Suttles said, adding the LMRP cap is expected to collect a majority of the leaking oil and gas. “It’s another version of what we used to call top hat” (OGJ, May 17, 2010, p. 23). The collected oil and gas will go to a drillship on the surface.

The LMRP cap installation involves cutting and then removing the damaged riser from the top of the failed BOP to leave a cleanly-cut pipe. The cap is designed to be connected to a riser from Transocean’s Discoverer Enterprise drillship and placed over the LMRP with the intention of the cap capturing most of the oil and gas flowing from the well.

BP said the LMRP cap “has not been previously carried out in 5,000 ft of water, and the successful deployment of the containment system cannot be assured.”

The first relief well has reached 12,090 ft of its 18,000 ft TD. Drilling of the second relief well is temporarily suspended and is expected to recommence shortly. It’s at 8,576 ft.

“This scares everybody, the fact that we can’t stop this flow,” Suttles said. “We are going to keep after it until we get it fully contained, fully stopped, and until we get this relief well done.””

Rico-I am not a liberal thanks for playing.
Val I know. I saw the saw on the lIve feed this morning. but if it is mostly contained cleanup can seriously be the focus.

Transocean Ltd. is the world’s largest offshore drilling contractor. The company rents floating mobile drill rigs, along with the equipment and personnel for operations, to oil and gas companies. The Deepwater Horizon was an ultra-deepwater, semi-submersible offshore drilling rig. Cameron International Corporation is another player. It is the manufacturer of the blowout preventer that was used at the Deepwater Horizon rig, operated by Transocean. Halliburton is the world’s second largest oilfield services corporation with operations in more than 70 countries. Halliburton plays a special role in the Deepwater Horizon disaster as it is directly linked to the cement failure causing the spill and explosion. Cement around the drilling pipe was “the single most-important factor in 18 of 39 well blowouts in the Gulf of Mexico over a 14-year period.” Halliburton was also the cementer on a well that suffered a big blowout in 2005, I believe, in the Timor Sea, off Australia. Tim Probert, Halliburton’s environmental officer, said his company was only following BP’s orders. “Oil rigs don’t explode as a result of a cement job,” he added. I agree! We have three facts that give me problems: First we have a defect in cementing. Second we have a complete failure of the Blowout Preventer including all built-in back-up features. What is the probability that BOTH events happen at the same time? Third, we have an explosion, neither caused by the faulty cement plug nor by the BOP failure. So

BP’s Top Kill Method has Failed_May 30, 2010

The video shows that BP’s “Top Kill” Method has failed, and that they are now planning a containment exercise ; rather than immediately trying to cap the leak. They should, however, be able to solve the oil leak problem in August, 2010, when they drill another oil well, nearby. The video shows the problems that they might experience in their present plans of containment, and how they can overcome these problems.

BP could deploy equipment Sunday or early next week in order to start the procedure known as a “top kill” to stem the flow of oil leaking into the Gulf of Mexico. The price of light sweet crude oil nosedived Thursday, reaching its lowest point since July 2009. JP Kenny will carry out front end-engineering design (FEED) for the subsea development of the Julimar Development Project.
